So in the last few weeks, old faithful my fridge died.
The kettle literally blew up – bits of kettle all over the kitchen.
The dryer is making peculiar noises – I am trying frantically to pretend it is all ok. My daughter stuck a bandaid on it.
A couple of days ago the vacuum cleaner gave an almighty bang and started pouring out smoke – it is still sitting on the back porch where it got dumped in rather a hurry.
Yesterday my reasonably new washing machine decided it was all too much and spat all the water out. Is this the electronic version of spitting the dummy?
Today I picked up my mop and the handle fell apart in my hands.
I am either getting secret vibes from the universe saying no more housekeeping, or I need to win on Tatts….

  • It usually goes in threes and how often that is true to form. If 2 things of mine break , I always wait for the third.

  • I feel sorry for you Kate. These things do tend to all happen at once sometimes. I’m going with it would be great to win tatts, but maybe the universe is telling you to give the housework a spell lol.

  • Always the way in my house everything seems to go at once, and it becomes so expensive, I’d take it as a hint no more housework lol!

  • It all seems to happen at once. I thought I was the only thing this sort of thing happened to. One day I had the dishwasher and washing machine die.

  • Oh wow! I don’t know what I’d do if all of that happened to me! It almost sounds like there’s something wrong with your electricity somewhere..perhaps a faulty point or surge? Hope nothing else breaks!
